'Golden Road' In China
These stunning photos shows corn seeds being dried in China's Henan province, converting the giant highway into a makeshiftYellow Brick Road. Villagers in Zhengzhou spent hours painstakingly laying out the seeds to bask in the sun rays, turning the black tarmac into a golden ocean. The maize is spread laboriously over the road by the workers' hands - as cars and other signs of China's modern world carry on whizzing by beside them. This is how Chinese farms traditionally dry corn because they do not have large machines to do the drying for them. The tarmac warms up in the sun, providing an ideal cost-saving way to dry the province's corn crop.
